Redesigning the Right-of-Way to Improve Mobility, Safety, and Public Space
Saturday, March 17 12:00-1:30pm
Bike East Bay is pushing for protected bike lanes on Adeline Street, as part of a corridor that will better serve the community’s needs for transportation, housing, economic opportunity, and public space. Give your feedback to the city at upcoming workshops and open houses.
Based on community feedback collected to-date and further technical analysis, the planning team has refined design concepts for the Adeline/South Shattuck street right-of–way for further community discussion. The workshop will open with an introduction of these concepts, followed by questions and a discussion led by planning team staff. There will be a particular focus on what open space uses and public realm uses the community is interested in seeing implemented as part of a redesigned Adeline Street.
Ongoing Open Houses
From Saturday, March 10, to Friday, March 23; exhibit hours same as hours of opening for Ed Roberts Campus during the week, and 9:30am-2:00pm Saturdays
The City of Berkeley invites you to take part in the next phase of the Adeline Corridor planning process. From March 10th – 23rd, Berkeley will be hosting a Community Open House at the Ed Roberts Campus to show a range of community improvement options for the area, focusing on five priority areas identified by community feedback to date: 1) housing 2) affordability, 3) economic opportunity 4) transportation 5) public space and 6) land use/community character. The Open House will also address land use and zoning, and will show updated concepts for the right-of-way (ROW) street design, incorporating feedback that was received in the last public exhibit in 2017: Re-Imagine Adeline (click here for a summary of feedback from that exhibit).
The Open House exhibits will be available for drop-in visits throughout the 2-week period, Monday to Friday whenever the Ed Roberts Campus is open, and from 9:30am – 2pm on both Saturdays. For those who are interested in having a more in-depth discussion, we are also hosting special workshops on the topics of: equity, community resources, economic opportunity, public space, and housing/community benefits on the two Saturdays of the Open House, March 10 and March 17. A detailed schedule of workshops will be available before the workshops.
Community residents have voiced strong support for safer streets, better transit and protected bike lanes. Here are some design concepts from your transportation professionals at Bike East Bay:
